Neeraj Chopra, a gold medalist in the Tokyo Olympics, has also won the gold medal in the Kuortane Games in Finland. With a throw of 86.69 meters in this Games, Chopra defeated the current world champion Anderson Peters to win the gold medal.
In the Games, Neeraj threw 86.69 meters in his first attempt, which proved to be decisive. No other player involved in the Cuorten Games has thrown the javelin so far.
During this, Neeraj Chopra also survived from injury. Actually, when he was throwing the throw, suddenly his foot slipped. However, he stood up again.
Union Sports Minister Anurag Thakur is also very happy on this feat of Neeraj Chopra. Anurag Thakur tweeted a video of Neeraj Chopra and wrote that Neeraj has got gold, he has done wonders again. What an incredible champion!
Earlier this month, the national record was set by throwing 89.30 meters at the Paavo Nurmi Games. Fans hoped that he would break his record but this time it could not happen.
Even after throwing 89.30m, Neeraj had to be content with silver in Pavo Nurmi. He missed 90 meters by just 70 centimeters.
